FA charge Arsenal and Hull over brawl

Arsenal and Hull City have been charged with failing to control their players by the Football Association (FA) here on Wednesday following their Premier League match on December 19.
A fiery match at the Emirates Stadium was inflamed further shortly before half-time when Arsenal’s Samir Nasri appeared to tread on the ankle of Hull’s Richard Garcia.
Stephen Hunt then clashed with Nasri and a mass confrontation ensued, with Gunners keeper Manuel Almunia running the length of the field to get involved.
Referee Steve Bennett eventually restored order and then booked both Hunt and Nasri.
Arsenal won the match 3-0. The clubs have until January 13 to respond.
